'The Mechanic'

The thing about this trailer is it gives me the feeling the Charles Bronson character Arthur Bishop, played in this remake by Jason Statham, doesn't die in the end. That this new Mechanic is the beginning of a franchise.

Couldn't be happier. Loved the original. Was sad about poor Bishop and glad when dirty rotten double-crossing upstart pretty-boy McKenna got blowed up good. Jerk.

Statham is one of the few real action stars with any believable grit these days. Does a nice job creating a likable and smart protagonist who is also a tough bastard. Looking forward to his take, and maybe a new 'Mechanic' every couple years.
